Homesick For Love

Homesick for love

Homesick for love I am always homesick; at and outside home. I long for someone who is not in my life but I have faith that one day he will be. I am homesick for him whom I don’t know yet. But I know a little about him. I know he looks at the stars at night and wonders about me. I know he wakes up in the morning and sees…

A Practical Girl

“Do you still love me after all these years?” He asked her. “Don’t you?” She asked back. “I don’t know but we are now a lot more mature and I kind of have feelings for you but not like earlier times.” He was trying hard to give a genuine explanation but failed to. She smiled and tried to catch his eyes while he was speaking. He stopped for a while and…

The Hardest Goodbye

The Hardest Goodbye

He called me at night. It was 2:00 a.m. perhaps, I don’t really remember but yes it was late at night. I rubbed my eyes and spoke in my sleepy voice “Hello baby, what happened? Why have you called me so late?” “I was missing you.” “I miss you too baby.” I turned towards right and closed my eyes feeling the love he was showering from the other side. “Can you…

Girl With A Past

I married the girl who did not love me. That was not the reason for marrying her but I thought she would love me. My mother’s words still echo deep inside, “Rahat will fall for you because I have raised you to be the ideal man” As soothing as her name is Rahat, she was the girl of my dreams. The day our parents told us to meet in the CCD…

Facebook Reminds Me Of Her Betrayal

Scrolling down my Facebook feed, I saw their picture with a caption: Madly in love  I can clearly see how happy those two are. Getting a prewedding shoot in Singapore, planning honeymoon in Europe and having those butterflies of excitement and nervousness; all of this would be really amazing. The way Mehul smiles at Saurabh is really #couplegoals. Ugh…Cut that crap. I hate that shit. I just hate seeing the two of…

Modern Love Triangle

April 8, 2018

Love, Friendship, Betrayal

I have always valued friendship over love but I never thought that one day I would lose both at the same time. Group of three besties is always better than two best friends. Luckily we were also three; Mridul, Lakshay and me(Varun). We were the three musketeers or ‘langotiya yaar’ (childhood friends) as you would say in Hindi. From playing cricket in the streets in underwears to sharing a flat in…

Old Aged Love

“Do you remember when I drove that scooty with you sitting behind me?” She asked while adjusting her specs on her nose. “How stupid is that of you to ask me such things?” He mocked at her. “But it has always been me who brings back the memories of our youth days into our discussions. I have never seen you talking about those golden times. Don’t you feel like reliving those…

Marriage

Dear husband, You have occupied the huge space that was once owned by my mom, dad and family. I was never convinced about the idea of a girl leaving her house and family in order to get married. This is the reason I was always scared of marriage. For my mom and dad, I am the best daughter and for my sister, I am the best sister. Inside, I know that…

Depression Has No Face

Depression

There are things I dont say for a reason. I have said them before and now I just dont want my heart to be broken by another stranger who has become an important part of my life. I dont confess my love to you as much as you do because I did earlier and they took advantage of it. I put in my efforts but not 100%, you know why? Because…

A Unique Love Story

I saw her today again after almost 9 years. 9 years ago she came to me for the permission to leave my life for her parents. She, with tears in her eyes gave up the fight. She, with those innocent eyes ruled my mind once again and I surrendered to her wish. And that was her wedding day. I waited in my car outside the parlor she got ready in. She…
